What is your favorite NethServer feature/module?


(Alessio Fattorini) #1

NethServer is an all-in-one server distribution and we have collected a bunch of new modules and features over the last years. What’s your favorite and why?
Because you use it a lot? Because it fits your users/customers needs?
Or just because it’s an awesome feature/module and it’s very powerful.
If you need some input take a look at the software center or this list
I’m really curious about that!

The IpSec implementation. Not current one, but the one will be soon released…
Am I Right? :wink:


(Alessio Fattorini) #3

I mean current features/modules not in development or planned ones :wink:


(Michael Träumner) #4

The squid implemantation is my favorite.
Before I used nethserver I configured it manual. With nethserver it’s much easier and not so much work :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Virtualization and Account Provider (Samba4AD)


(Alessio Fattorini) #6

That’s interesting, what do you appreciate most about Virtualization module?


(Vasu Kolli) #7

Uncomplicated feature rich design


(Alessio Fattorini) #8

Do you think that our interface is very simple but powerful at the same time?


(Vasu Kolli) #9

yes, I mean It

Easy to setup and now when i test one implementation I am preparing to move my physical servers to one machine running NS7 and virtualize all (he he “One server to rule them all” :wink:)

all the things 4 a small biz server

  • Samba AD
  • Samba share (if ACLs are working)
  • Mail with SOGO
  • Nextcloud
    I will try IRC and Wiki 2

There are a lot of nice powerfull and mostly free solution 4 VM
my Neth 7 will running on a small xenserver HA cluster with 2 nodes

On my mind services and firewall including routing had 2 run on a diffend VM oer better on external hardware. there are things like untangel …

Totally agree with Axel. After looking for a replacement for sbs2011 for quite some time and trying zentyal alfresco etc… I saw a mention on another bbs to nethserver. The combination of email ad and nextcloud are perfect for a small business.


(Alessio Fattorini) #13

So, Email + NextCloud is the best mix


(Bill ) #14

Email, Active Directory, and NextCloud. I also agree that SoGo should be used for groupware as it syncs all data with Thunderbird which integrates nicely with quickbooks desktop software.


(Axel Urbanski) #15

dont 4get samba AD and Samba fileserver with roaming profiles but now ACl are not working in the shares.

Horde is nice with mobile phones

What is with radius ?


(Francenildo) #16

ddclient would be good.


(Marc) #17

You’re lucky! Check the ddclient module by @stephdl


(Gerald Brandt) #18

SOGo, followed a close second by SOGo.

Getting OpenChange (with external AD) working would be even better.


(Alessio Fattorini) #19

@gbr OpenChange, Zentyal spent a lot on it and it didn’t work so well as far as I know.
Any other vote?


(Michael Träumner) #20

This I right, I tried before, it shows always synchronization errors, the secratary function didn’t work.

@gbr Please have a look at CalDav Synchronizer for Outlook, it works good.
